In his podcast
, "NPR's Rob Sachs talks about life's sticky situations and how turn them into an opportunity for adventure, growth, or at the very least, laughter." Like how to propose
, or if that doesn't work, what to do when you run into your ex
(Mp3) (turns out being calm and collected beats out feigning not to have made eye contact), how to talk to strangers
(Mp3), sing a lullaby
(by interviewing Rob Springfield), or how to, you know, avoid, um, Verbal Ticks

Adam Gopnik on NPR (NB: Requires Real Player)
Gopnik wrote about Paris for the New Yorker
for some years. Susan Stamberg interviewed him for Morning Edition
today, and he says many things I agree with about what makes for a good city (just to tie into the discussion we've been having about cities).
